cuomo from erik. james says in connecticut there are two major problems, the deficit and more taxes. both problems are created by one party rule. what are the big issues in your state? join that conversation on facebook by looking for c-span. let us take a look at the balance of power in state. we can see here who controls the governors' seats. 30 republicans states in red, 19 democratic, and one independent in rhode island. but as your what ray has to say on our democrats line. caller: good morning. i wanted to say that i believe here in the state of texas -- our standard of living is what keeps is going. nobody can live on $7.25 hour. our standard of living is so below the economy it should be at $12 per hour. everything is so expensive right now. it should be, at the very least, $12 per hour. host: you are calling to raise the minimum wage? caller: yes, ma'am. if everybody makes at least $12 an hour, this country would boom so fast. here in the state of texas -- i think it is everywhere. the corruption of the governor and the mayor. big corporate donors, big business owners. they
for many, many years both of the tax consistent with spending. and nobody ever put the debt ceiling or the u.s. willingness to pay its obligations on the table in the way it was placed in the summer of 2011, and the way here it is now being placed on the table again. it's a big mistake and 2011 to create this degree of uncertainty and fear in the u.s. and around the world and the big mistake to do it again today. >> why would any good thinking patriotic american want to use the debt ceiling as a vehicle to reduce spending rather than the other legislative opportunities it would have? what would the reason be? certain not to embarrass the united states of america. >> i have no idea, mr. rangel, but i can tell you that -- >> well, if you don't have any, then maybe it is the objectives of this president at whatever cost, some leaders our so-called leaders have said, that they want to stop this president and the were unsuccessful in that measure. so maybe, maybe they decided to change tactics and maybe this discussion is a necessary and we find some of the way to a handle on the deficit
in tax credits and policies of the public utilities commission to favor alternative energy, independent power production. which is obvious today. when they promoted code- generation it was something very novel. 30 years ago. now you have a different name for a period in his third party power production using power in a driving way to recapture the most efficient way. innovation is important. i have to also, every time we heard the word innovation, i have to put a plug in for tradition. i have a very traditional education. i spent a lot of years in silence speaking latin up in the hills, living within the medieval framework. i do respect the past. we study it. if you are grounded in tradition, you feel quite confident in change and innovation. if you are insecure, you are very reluctant to embrace the unknown. i do think we need to in our education and politics, we have to have a new appreciation for our traditions and the patterns that describe our culture and our being as americans. having said all that, we have saved in california tens of billions in energy efficiency. when i first ad
where republicans and democrats seem to agree that something needs to be done on tax issues or fiscal issues, where there has been an impasse for many years now. host: in terms of the principle, how detailed is the outline? are we talking about a bill taking shape or just a sketch at this point? caller: it is more of a sketch, the first step in trying to get an actual bill going. basically these are legislative goals that include four areas, one is a package, one is overhauling the existing system, another is establishing a way to ensure that there is less illegal hiring of workers, and another is to create a guest worker program. but those goals, we do not know how that will be achieved or worked out over the next few months. things are supposed to get going here as soon as next month. senator schumer and the other senators believe that they could have something by late spring, early summer. host: looking at "the san antonio news," we have this headline -- "upset republicans." what are you hearing about republicans getting things through? caller: house republicans do not seem to be o
what obama spent. >> i think we can do it if we stop spending a lot of money on wars. >> taxing people that have a lot of money is not unfair. we don't need people to be as rich as they really are. john: for the record, bush did spend an astounding $3 trillion per year, but obama spent 3.8 trillion per year so far, and that is adjusted for inflation. so obama spent 25% more. but they don't believe that. they think it's all bush's fault. >> it's a special kind of kool-aid, it is half worship ms. with dilution -- mixed with dilution. look at the threats that are happening in this country? john: i hope we would learn from what happened in greece. but as of this week, no longer do because the reaction of people in greece is not to say we messed up, we spend too much, it is to be angry about the politicians who want to cut back. and how do they take it out, they bombed the homes of tv commentators who support this. so that is a model for us? >> unfortunately that is the road we are headed down. i live in california and we see it coming faster. we shouldn't be that close to greece being on t
. >> they have to pay back taxes have a noncriminal record and learn english and understand and study our history. they have to get in line behind everyone else. they will be granted legal status but they have to get behind everyone else who has waited legally to get green card status. >> some conservatives are expressing concerns with the plan. ted cruz says allowing immigrants who came to the united states illegally is inconsistent with rule of law and not fair to immigrants who came here legally. >> kelly wright live. thank you. this morning we are hearing from florida senator marco rubio. rubio sitting down with sean hannity to discuss the senate proposal we told you about yesterday and discussing what he thinks are the necessary steps in the immigration process. there must be enforcement measures before a green card. >> i think it's a good time to remind people the vast majority of con sefb tives favor legal immigration. we don't have a little immigration that works right now. illegal immigration undermine illegal immigration. he we understand we have to deal with this. we have 11 million pe
. now stores will be allowed to pass the extra cost on the you, like a tax. up to 4 percent of the total cost of whenever you're buying. with us now, consumer education president, smart credit dot com. the president of optimum capital management. great to have you both year. al start with you. what do you make of this? >> this is really bad news for consumers. we are already getting nickel-and-dimed to death, and we are about to get even worse. essentially, the fee that the market had -- merchant has to pay to exit the credit card, cone -- commonly called a slight fee, in the past they have not been able to charge a line-item extra cost to the consumer to cover that. starting this sunday will be allowed to. that is the bad news. they have already baked in that she in the price of the merchandise the you're buying. so now not only unable to charge a fee on top of what you're already purchasing, but essentially paying the fee to times over, and those of us to pay cash are really getting screwed because we're still paying the fee for people using credit cards. gerri: i want to show people s
an outdated and anticompetitive tax code, and to streamline government bureaucracies that are literally suffering job creation. they have done their jobs while senate democrats have tried to keep their priorities secret. now, we know senate democrats don't like the house budgets, and we know they don't even support the president's budgets, at least not with their votes. what we haven't known for nearly four years is what they're for, because they have refused to put their plans for the country down on paper and actually vote for them. now it's my hope that the democratic sudden interest in passing a budget isn't just another attempt to actually raise taxes. as i've said repeatedly, we're done with the revenue issue. the president has already said that the so-called rich are now paying their -- quote -- "fair share" -- end quote, and of course middle-class families are already on the hook for new taxes as a result of obamacare. so the question is who would be in the firing line this time? and at what cost? look, struggling families shouldn't have to pick up the tab again for washington'

from a federal perspective is that this takeover is subsidized through tax credits that or just extended by the fiscal cliff bill, which allows investors to come into our inner-city neighborhoods and build expensive buildings, turned over and lease them to a charter boards and high rates, so charters don't have sufficient funding to even operator schools as far as operating expenses such as teachers and books and so on. i'm concerned about proliferation of charter's and what this has done to destroy neighborhoods. host: here's a comment -- coming up next, we will talk more about immigration policy. what the president had to say yesterday and what a bipartisan group of senators announced earlier this week. argos -- our guest is carlos gutierrez, now working on immigration issues as well as other things in his portfolio. later on, paul krugman, a columnist, gave us a visit. we will be right back.

outspoken international president. got a piece up on "huffington post" this morning about taxes and the aversion to paying taxes among americans. i'm talking about the one and only leo gerard. the united steelworkers. north america's largest industrial union representing over 1.2 million active and retired members. we find out more about their good work at their web site, usw.org. we recommend keeping up to date on what's going on here in our nation's capital and around the country on the big issues of the day. market book bookmark it, thinkprogress.com. igor volsky is here with us every tuesday morning. >> thank you. in fact, if you make it your home page, you can go there automatically every day. >> bill: make it your home page. >> everyone who listens or watches this show, their home page is billpressshow.com already. >> stick them in safari. >> bill: there it is. so igor, it looks like immigration reform may actually happen this year, right? >> there may be some momentum and the reason is republicans want to win elections. they say that quite blatantly reason number one is w
it because they want them to pay taxes on the land. if it's empty the money doesn't go to the government. >> bob: i didn't know it was in all 50 states, if you went in there after seven years and paid taxes on property and paid lean liens not the mortgag. >> eric: he is not paying the taxes. he is just living there. because he didn't break in. no one saw him actually physically break in, he is just in there living. it's strange law. >> dana: so strange. what a strange person. who thinks this would be a good idea. oh, i this "i" i'll go live in greg's apartment when he moves out? >> bob: who would want to do that? >> dana: i wouldn't do it while he was there. weird thing why he feels entitled to live in someone else's house. >> greg: you make me sick. you so housist. if the successful make their riches on the back of the poor, how is that not my house, too? i deserve that house. by the way, bob and i, he can't stop us from going down there this weekend and hot tubbing with andre. >> eric: that is true. freddie why don't we -- >> eric: here is how this thing works. trying to figure out wha
a background check and pay a fine and back taxes before gaining legal status in the united states. all that is contingent on securing borders. the proposal provides for increased use of drones, more personnel and improved infrastructure and it would create an employment verification system and improve the process for admitting needed workers. cnn chief congressional correspondent dana bash and cnn chief white house correspondent jessica yellin are working the story. dana, the tone was pretty optimistic up on capitol hill today. >> it sure was but, you know, we have seen this movie before, you and i, wolf, and a lot of other people watching this issue go kind of up and down with the partisan wins. but this is something that is different this time. because of something very simple. and that is what happened in the last election to republicans. particularly mitt romney with the latino voters. he lost big time. and that's why when i asked senator mccain and others who were standing right here where i'm standing, half a dozen years ago, why this is different, that's why they answered that w
and pass a background check. you would be required to do that if you're illegal. pay a fine and back taxes. earn probationary legal status. learn english. continue to pay taxes. show work history and then get a green card and then apply for citizenship. effectively you would go to the back of the line. so this is a bipartisan effort. remember, some of these commissions have come together in the past, in the last four years, specifically about the debt and the president hasn't necessarily taken on the plan that they have come up with. so this will be really important to see if it actually works. >>brian: a really important provision, skills valued. we've got engineers out there, computer technology experts, people when they have skills -- for example, if they train at american universities, they would get a priority. this is what microsoft and you always heard apple saying. we need more engineers in this country. why are we training them and letting them go back home? let's give them u.s. status or a green card. marco rubio talks about a plan. >> before we can move towards a path for green

line is historic tax rates, how much we raise in taxes and the blue is how many increases president obama is calling for. the red is where spending is going. spending is the problem, revenues are not the problem. if you keep chasing them they will hurt economic growth, shut down the economy and won't get the budget balanced. >> what i heard the president say was programs like social security and medicare and med aid critically important for our future and we need to have a bipartisan commitment to make them work. bob and i have been in a lot of meetings talking about deficit reduction. we need reform in the programs that mean they will live on to serve future generations. that's the message i took from the president. >> referring to bob corker to the left of the screen. the president has a full plate. not just the budget but the issue of guns, and this week he heads to las vegas for a speech about overhauling immigration. so the second term is already kicking off with plenty on his plate. >> all right. peter alexander, white house correspondent, thank you so much. >>> we want to tur
raise taxes. you have to, at some point, you have to get your fiscal house in order and that means cuts to some of these entitlement programs. >> no it does not. when you talk about getting your fiscal house in order, that's correct, but our republican friends forget to mention that at 15.8%, revenue compared to gdp, that is the lowest percentage in 60 years. when clinton gave us a balanced budget, revenue was about 20%. we have one out of four corporations, profitable corporations not paying a nickel in taxes in america. the effective corporate tax rate today is the lowest it's been since 1972. of course republicans want to cut social security, medicare, medicaid. but i think it is time for large corporations who are not paying a nickel in taxes to start paying their fair share. >> i want to ask you about your vote yesterday on filibuster reform. you voted no. you don't think it goes far enough. why? and is getting something done better than nothing? >> yeah, i think getting something done and making the senate a little more efficient is better than nothing. but at the end of the day,
, but does it help anybody? cuts the amount of taxes that gates sends to the federal government to control the meat inspectors and all the wonderful things the government does for us, and so you have to, i think, take cognizance of why the country is great. it's because of the wealth. you can't defeat poverty if you don't create wealth. .. santorum served 14 -- 16 years in congress. did he ever once hisser anything about banning contraceptives? yet, somehow that message was -- it took advantage of all the low-information women voters who just follow joy behar and have no idea that rick santorum and mother teresa believes that contraception is against the catholic teaching. i'm told only 20% of the catholics respect that teaching, but for those who do, it used to be in my time you respected people's religious beliefs you didn't ridicule them or demonize them. i think the fact the democrats were successful -- getting back to negativity -- where was the war on women. they tried to convince that somehow santorum was going to do this and the republicans are against contraception. i think i even
